Once and for all MTV has gotten their way. They don't have to worry about the annoyance that is playing music videos anymore, because they finally announced the laying to rest of the once-mandatory viewing TRL. The show formerly known as Total Request Live that formerly had viewers was really the only hour left on Music TeleVision where one could actually find music (well, at least half of the song before they rudely chopped it off). Burying this fossil (yes, I was surprised it was actually still on, too!) will now free MTV up to fill that hour with more pointless snotty "reality" programming. I hear Audrina may get her own spin-off! Hallelujah!! Here's an interesting article about 7 MTV icons which would not be allowed on the air at MTV today. A fun read.
